THE COUNTDOWN - #10

#10- MCC Athletics produced six NCCAA II 1st Team All-Americans in 2012-2013

These six individuals represented Manhattan Christian College well not only on the athletic field, but also off. Outside of these six MCC had numerous 2nd team All-Americans, All-Region, and All-Conference players. We are proud of all our student-athletes and look forward to a great 2013-14 athletic year.

Ricky Wiseman, JR, GK- Men’s Soccer goal keeper Ricky Wiseman anchored the defense for the Crusaders who finished the 2012-13 school year 3rd in the nation. Ricky’s signature moment came at the 2012 NCCAA National Tournament consolation game against Ohio Christian University. MCC defeated OCU 3-0 in PK’s behind Wiseman’s unbelievable defense.

Caleb Veer, JR, D- If GK Wiseman was the anchor for the MCC defense then junior defenseman Caleb Veer was the undisputed leader. The junior had a year where he was asked to mark the best opposing players and lead a young backline in keeping the ball out of the net. Veer will be asked to do the same and more in his upcoming senior campaign. [photo by Kathy Veer]

 

 

Kylie Rupe, SO, OH­- Entering the 2012 season MCC Volleyball had huge expectations.  Sophomore outside hitter Kylie Rupe made sure the Lady Crusaders met those expectations. Kylie’s talent and determination led the team to the conference championship and their first region championship since 2009. Rupe was named conference and region MVP along with NCCAA Player of the week in 2012 and will look to repeat those honors in 2013. [photo by yearbook staff]

 

 

Isaac Wilson, SR- When MCC began the sport of cross country in 2010 it was widely assumed that it would be a while before the Crusaders would make their mark in the NCCAA. Isaac Wilson did a great job of putting MCCXC on the map sooner rather than later. The former NJCAA National Champion came to MCC to pursue a degree in Pastoral Ministry and quickly made his mark finishing 2nd in the nation during his junior campaign and fifth this past season. The impact that Wilson made during his two years will not soon be forgotten. [photo by yearbook staff]

 

 

 

Lindsey Anderson, SR, F- In what became the story of the year the Lady Crusaders basketball team made a remarkable run to the NCCAA II National Championship game led by senior forward Lindsey Anderson. Anderson had been a fixture in the starting lineup since coming to MCC as a freshman in 2009 and left as one of the most decorated women’s basketball players in MCC history. In her final campaign Lindsey was named conference MVP, region MVP, and first team All-American. [photo by yearbook staff]

 

 

Trey Shelton, JR, IF- In a season filled with ups and downs and much change one thing the Crusader baseball squad could count on was junior infielder Trey Shelton. Shelton led the Crusaders in many offensive categories and will look to lead a young team in the 2014 season. [photo by yearbook staff ]
